You may have an 'Elf on your shelf'..

but I have baby Jesus in my cabinet.


I have had this little pottery nativity set for years {bought from local potters at Mud Dabbers}. This year, I have tucked it into my open kitchen cabinets. I still need to make a little star to hang above their heads.

I simply used a wood slice from this project from last year. The hole normally used to string a ribbon through for hanging is used instead to stick a little sprig of greenery in to.  

        sweet and simple.

Let it Snow Man!

Thursday, December 01, 2011

Have you seen Emily Henderson's super great vintage Snowglobe family? 

A lot of us don't necessarily want to use the traditional red and green in our decorating and this color palette offers a fresh and unexpected option. Not to mention it rocks the fun factor!

She made 3 snowman each with 3 different sized globes. She made a base out of plywood and then attached a smaller block of wood with nuts that allowed a rod to be threaded on.  

She attached furniture pads to the bottom to prevent any scratching.

With a drill bit that matched the size of her metal rod, she drilled holes in the top and bottom of each globe. 

And then she loaded 'em up.

If you are lucky enough to have globes that come on cool bases, then you can turn them in to hats! 

 And the global vibe continues on the other side of the room:

This room was part of HGTV's Holiday Festival which aired last Saturday. I, unfortunately, missed it and I can't find another listing for a second airing. {If anyone hears when it airs again please let me know!} But, you can check out more pictures and info on Emily's blog.

Awesome little diddies

I wanted to share some great ideas and/or products that I have stumbled upon.  

#1 Bean Bag Refills. If you own a bean bag, you know that over time it becomes flat. But, did you know that you can buy replacement 'beans'?!   Me, either! 

Strolling down the aisle of K-mart I found this for @$14. A little pricey, but my son does his x-boxing from this thing, and I kinda think he's worth it. {But, let me tell you that getting these things inside the little zipper opening is like trying to catch snowflakes.}


#2 Big stuffed Gingerbread Men melt even 13 year old boy hearts...


{Careful boys, that cookie is 600 smack-a-roos}


#3.The Wine Purse. This is way better than the normal brown bag. If only it had a cell phone and key pocket, oh and maybe a 'monogram' option.




#4 Elastilash--eyelash lengthener by Obagi. It really works. I have very sensitive eyes and I have to be super careful about what goes near them {cats are a HUGE no-no} so I was nervous to try this, but it never bothered me at all. I started using this about 8 months ago. I don't use it every day--a couple of weeks on and couple weeks off, before I go to bed. Within 2 days of using, I see results. At $60, It's about 40% cheaper than the well-known Revitalash {which I haven't tried so i can't compare}.


{To get this stuffed in your stocking, local peeps can get it from Shenez at Saints European Skin Care.}


#5 This stuff is delicious. Load it up in your coffee.


#6 The Curly Girl Handbook is a curly girls 'ah-ha' moment. It offers fantastic advice and needs to be in the hands of all curlies!        

Curly Girl: The Handbook

And, let me just give a shout-out to THE most incredible curly girl salon ever--WINK in Asheville. This is the most professional, most knowledgeable, most educated group of creative folks I've ever come across {not to mention, they also have a wonderful boutique full of jewelry, accessories, clothes, gifts and curly hair products}. if you live anywhere close, you need to go.

{not compensated for anything--just sharing my brain thoughts}
